If Pay for Success activities are added, should the CDFI Fund cap the amount of BEA Program awards related to these activities? If so, explain why and be specific regarding the amount in award dollars and/or percentage. 3. Would the addition of Pay for Success activities as an eligible Distressed Community Financing Activity incentivize financial institutions to increase the funding of Pay for Success activities? 4. Do financial institutions currently fund Pay for Success activities? If so, what are the attributes of the financial institutions? For example, are they predominately certified-CDFIs, community banks, minority depository institutions, small banks, large banks, etc.? D. Limitations on Loans or Investments to Certain Types of Businesses: The CDFI Fund is considering prohibiting loans or investments to certain types of businesses that otherwise meet other eligibility criteria from qualifying for the BEA Program. 1. Should the CDFI Fund prohibit loans or investments to certain types of businesses that otherwise meet other BEA Program eligibility requirements from qualifying for the BEA Program? For example, should the CDFI Fund consider a loan to a liquor store, gambling facility, etc. that otherwise meets other BEA Program eligibility requirements, an ineligible activity? If so, to which types of businesses should loans or investments be considered ineligible? If not, please provide a specific reason why not. Also, please discuss the positive or negative impact that loans or investments to these types of businesses may have on a Distressed Community. E. Award Size: The CDFI Fund has received feedback regarding the continued reduction in the maximum BEA Program award size. Over the past three years, appropriated funds for the BEA Program have decreased from $25 million in FY 2010 to approximately $17.1 million in FY 2013. The CDFI Fund has continued to make an effort to award as many Applicants as possible with available appropriations. In order to do so, the CDFI Fund has lowered the award cap in the last three BEA Program award rounds, reducing the maximum award amount an individual Applicant can receive. For example, in FY 2010 the BEA Program was appropriated $25 million and the award cap was $600,000. In FY 2011, the BEA Program was appropriated $22 million and the award cap was $500,000. In FY 2012, the BEA Program was appropriated $18 million and the award cap was VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:15 Oct 28, 2013 Jkt 232001 $415,000. The CDFI Fund is particularly interested in knowing how impactful BEA Program awards are to: community banks, certified CDFIs, minority depository institutions, and Small Banks based on CRA Asset Size Classification (assets of less than $296 million as of 12/31/2012). 1. How impactful are BEA Program awards to the recipient financial institutions? 2. Should the CDFI Fund consider making fewer, significantly larger awards? For example, with an appropriation of $18 million, the CDFI Fund could make 18 awards of $1 million each. 3. What other factors should the CDFI Fund consider regarding the size of BEA Program awards? 1. Should the CDFI Fund require Applicants to provide supporting documentation for loans or investments of less than $250,000? If so, what type of supporting documentation should be required? 2. Would lowering the threshold amount for requiring supporting documentation requirements significantly increase the burden on Applicants or result in any potential issues that the CDFI Fund may not have considered? 3. Should the supporting documentation requirements apply to every transaction, to only certain specific transaction types, or to transactions of a certain amount? III. Reporting and Supporting Documentation A. Worksheet 2: BEA Report of Transactions: The CDFI Fund requires BEA Applicants to complete and submit Worksheet 2: BEA Report of Transactions as part of the BEA application. Worksheet 2: BEA Report of Transactions captures the transaction data for the transactions an Applicant included in its application. The data currently captured is: (1) Name of Borrower/Investee/Service Provider; (2) Total Dollar Value or Amount of Transactions; (3) Amount Disbursed to Date; (4) Street Address; (5) City; (6) State; (7) Zip; (8) Census Tract; (9) Date of Execution; (10) Date of Initial Disbursement; (11) Date of Final Disbursement; (12) Type of Activity; and (13) Impact. In addition to the information currently captured, the CDFI Fund is considering adding two columns to Worksheet 2: BEA Report of Transactions: (1) Description of Business Financed; and (2) NAICS Code of the Business Financed. These two columns would only apply to loans or investments provided to businesses. 1. Would the addition of these columns significantly increase the burden on Applicants or result in any potential issues that the CDFI Fund may not have considered? 2. Should the supporting documentation requirements apply to every transaction, to only certain specific transaction types, or to transactions of a certain amount? B. Supporting Documentation Provided by Applicants: The CDFI Fund currently requires Applicants to provide supporting documentation for transactions greater than or equal to $250,000. The CDFI Fund is considering changing the supporting documentation requirements. A. General Feedback: The CDFI Fund would also like to obtain general feedback on the BEA Program and recognizes that there are other topics that may not have been addressed in the questions above, but that are important to consider. This information is especially important given that the BEA Program statute is over 12 years old and the Program regulations are over three years old. Please provide any general feedback on any aspect of the BEA Program, including but not limited to, program design, direction, impacts, performance measures, etc. PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 IV.
